How have y'all been? It seems like it has been FOREVER since I've made anything crafty. It also seems like I haven't been online much either. I guess working two jobs, volunteering with my church group, helping with Sunday school and getting my daughter ready to go to college will do that. lol I feel awful that this post is so late. It was supposed to go live on July 1st, and here I am on the 17th, finally posting it. I'm thankful and blessed to be part of such a wonderful group over at HOC. They're kind, and patient, and very understanding. I'm hoping to back off of so many hours at the second job, so that I can have more crafty time. I feel the need to do that.
Anyway, onto this months challenge over at House of Cards. This month you're challenged to create a card using food and/or drink, or the colors in this photo.
I couldn't find anything with food or drink, so I went with the colors. I also decided to go with darker versions of these colors, so that I could use some patterned papers I've had in my stash that I really love, but haven't used yet. Here is my card.
I love how this turned out, considering it's been ages since I've made anything. For some added interest, I did some multi media stuff on the background panel with some embossing paste, silver ink splatters and white text stamping. I also have more layers and "stuff" on this card than is normal for me. I'm not sure where I was going when I first started this card, but this is where it ended up. I'm going to send this to a great friend, who is always so amazing. Hope she likes it.
Well, that's all for me. I do hope you'll head over to the HOC blog to see all of the lovely creations everyone has made this month. As always, they're absolutely beautiful! If I don't make it back before August 1st, I hope you'll stop by then, to see what fun challenge will be posted next month. :)
Take care my friends!
